This multimedia exhibition features five Sydney artists from diverse international backgrounds

Cement Fondu is one of Sydney's newest galleries, having only opened in March this year. Its next exhibition looks at the relationship between personal narratives and migrant communities and features video and installation works from five artists.

A video and installation from James Nguyen, performed with his Aunty, shows "the purifying gesture of adding charcoal into a section of the Parramatta River."

Khaled Sabsabi’s video installation, 'Ali or عli' "explores sunrise and sunset as both a poetic and literal metaphor for divergent east-west perspectives, unified under a single sun and through a shared, fundamental spirituality."

Mona Ibrahim's new video work "relays an intimate conversation with her grandfather that reflects on her personal experience emigrating from Cairo to Sydney in 2012."

Phaptawan Suwannakudt’s installation is inspired by her memories of Bangkok’s Wat Pho.

And Shivanjani Lal’s video installation 'Khet' "documents the artist offering a traditional gesture of Pranama 'respectful salutation or bowing' to her ancestral mother country of India - the khet or landscape from which she is now displaced."

The exhibition is showing alongside the Refugee Art Project.
